Moreland Council

Indigenous Region: Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung | State: Victoria

Moreland City Council is located in the inner north of Melbourne, 5 kms from the central business district. The council is comprised of a mix of rediential and industrial areas, with a major activity centre located on Sydney Road.

Property Change has had an active role in shaping developments within Moreland. We work consitantly with council to achieve the best results for the community as well as out customers.

Some of our more recent projects within the council include;


2 Union Street, Brunswick

Our sixth townhouse joint venture launched in July 2016 with the purchase of 2 Union Street Brunswick, only 50 metres from Sydney Road with Jewel train station a little over 150m away.

Our 6 partner collective purchased the 365 m2 property at auction for $1.8m and our strategy is to build 6 dwellings on the site, five four level 3-bedroom townhouses on the property and a three level residence with ground floor office on Union Street. The five rear townhouses will all be on compact circa 50 sqm lots over four levels with 3 beds, 2 baths and 1 car park.

The site has laneway right of ways along the eastern and northern boundary, which will make for great access and light, but also give the site a bit of a gritty Dickensian context, with views to the rear of the old red brick Victorian shops along Sydney Road and the tops of the Brunswick Uniting Church spires further up Sydney Road. The property came with plans and permits for 10 small apartments and ground floor retail. We have re-designed the scheme within the approved building envelope and are looking to obtain our permit in early 2018 and start construction in late 2018.


22 Justin Avenue, Glenroy

Recently one of our most accomplished projects is in Glenroy. Working with Excelon Projects and Atlas architects. This property is in the Moreland City Council within a General Residential Zone.

The project sought to construct 4 two-story townhouses on the 700sqm block. This ambitious development was negotiated through careful consideration of the Moreland City Council Planning Scheme, most specifically the Municipal Strategic Statement outlining that the property is in an area of incremental change. The policy basis identifies that incremental change will be supported in General Residential Zones, and that new development should be designed to contribute to an improved landscape character.

With a focus on communal garden space, minimizing overshadowing and encouraging a vibrant street interface, Property Change was able to achieve a permit in under 4 months.
